Strengthening Malaysia’s Automotive Industry
Transportation is seen as a major contributor to global climate change due to carbon emissions and sustainable mobility in rapidly growing cities is becoming a key focus for sustainable development. This causes urban planners, especially in developing countries including Malaysia, to continually work towards supporting sustainable transport through green mobility.
Vehicle technology trends such as Electrification, Autonomous, Internet of Things (IoT), Cooperative-Intelligent Transportation System (C-ITS) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are critical development focus for today’s global carmakers to enhance vehicle safety as well as make the vehicle more intelligent and environmentally-friendly.
The Automotive (EV/EEV) and Green Mobility Week at Expo 2020 Dubai is focusing on initiatives under the Malaysian National Automotive Policy to strengthen the automotive industry, particularly in the area of green mobility and smart mobility. The focuses are:
